Wellington residents' group fuming over diesel buses

From Sunday Morning, 7:11 am on 17 June 2018

A campaign group called ReVolt Wellington met with a group of Wellington City and Regional Councillors on Wednesday night in Seatoun to express their concerns about the switch from trolley buses to diesel in their neighhourhoods. They say the diesel buses are not the clean green vehicles promised and there is a 300 percent increase in noise over trolley buses since they started running their routes. Seatoun resident Herwin Bongers says he's had to spend $30,000 to soundproof his home since the trolley buses were taken out of service. And he says the council is full of half-truths about the pollution levels.
